There’s no telling when a disaster will happen; however, it’s safe to say that being prepared ahead of time will allow you to know what to do should you find yourself facing such a situation.
Find a Reliable Tree Service Company
Before an emergency happens, locate and take down the number of a reliable tree service company. When you’re in the middle of an emergency, you might be tempted to choose the first company that you find; however, that’s not the best approach as you could end up hiring a company that isn’t experienced, that isn’t licensed and that could end up causing more trouble. It will also serve you well to find a local tree company service as they can often arrive faster to your location.
Locating a reliable service is key in an emergency situation. When locating a tree removal company, make sure that they are licensed and insured and that they provide service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Location Needs to be Secured
Removal of the damaged tree is only half of the battle when an emergency arises. The location needs to be secured to ensure that further damage doesn’t happen. To secure the location, the crew should place a protective barrier over anything that has been damaged as a result of the fallen tree or limb. For example, if the tree fell onto your roof, placing a tarp over the point of entry will prevent more damage from happening to your home.
Removal of the Tree
Just because it’s an urgent situation doesn’t mean that the company should do a quick and sloppy job. Yes, they do need to act quickly, but they still need to pay attention to detail. They should use care when removing the tree, ensure that the surrounding area is safe and they should also properly dispose of the tree.
Protect Yourself from a Tree Emergency
There are ways that you can tell if a tree is in danger of falling and doing damage. Understanding these signs, you will be able to act quickly before the tree causes serious damage. Signs that indicate trouble and swift action needs to be taken include:
- The tree is leaning out of nowhere and it has never leaned before.
- The trunk of the tree has cracks in it, bark is falling off or there are other signs of damage.
- The leaves are wilted and falling off in the middle of the spring or summer.
Emergencies are a part of life, but when you think of an emergency, a tree is probably the last thing that comes to mind.
However, a storm can tear through your neighborhood and knock a tree down in the middle of your street. A tree that you didn’t even know was rotted out could topple onto your fence. A large limb could break off of a tree and land directly onto your car! There are so many different types of tree emergencies that can happen. It’s always best to be prepared!
